  1. Re: possibly worst car ever

    But this may be a necessary change to engines as the worlds fuel supply decreases, i cant say i like the car, but it is worth looking at just for a referance to what the world might be driving in 60 years.

    True, true. By 2050 you can kiss your gas burning cars goodbye, cuz there isn't going to be much fuel for them. Even if i do like my 454, times are changing. This car has not just one body if you are interested. You can stick many kinds on it, like a minivan, to truck, to sports car, to family car, multiple uses off one platform. I personally would buy this, not because of performance, but because of individuality, and possibility.<!-- Signature -->

    You sit here saying fuel cells are slow and not worth it. Do you think gas powered cars went 250 and 0-60 in 3 seconds in 1910? NO! Gas powered engines improved and so will fuel cell engines.<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. Re: possibly worst car ever

    yeah, this car is definitely the thing of the future. why do you think honda, toyota, gm, ford, and mercedez are all developing the tech?
    the only reason new cars get bad raps is b/c they are (mostly) slow as shit. i mean, look at the electric hybrids.
    i think we wont see these pick up in popularity until
    1. we have a major oil problem
    2. we have more environmental leaders
    3. when the autonomy GT version kicks a ferraris ass

    g, look into it before sayin the most idiotic stuff on this site, k? read the woho's reply, that must be the most supercar-sit member around... he shows intelligence, and many more, unlike you moron, who proudly presents his stupidity to the whole world through the world wide web... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>
     
  6. Re: possibly worst car ever

    - ok let's get started again..

    this car is not an "electric car" it has fuel cells, which are something completely different... and in the case of both the hy-wire and the AUTOnomy, there's no motor...

    GM doesn't intend to put this car into production. not as it sits now, this car is rather a showcase for the latest technology they have researched... not only its a fuel-cell, ultra-clean car, but it also setsa new standard in ergonomics and accomodation, also its X-board "plattform" will allow you to switch body styles on a same car very easily, this will also allow GM to save some bucks by making a product line using the same plattform and only making different sheetmetal...

    the evolution to the AUTOnomy concept car was the GM Hy-Wire
    displayed this year at the Paris Autoshow

    and by the way... sometimes I wonder what these guys at the Rinspeed design center have been smoking... they really create unique looking cars...

    That's beuatiful, I wish everyoe thought that you couldn't spend enough time at MIT.
    What most of these wanks don't realize, is that a good portion of the engineers that developed the technology that went into the last 40 years of automobile manufacturing were trained at places just like MIT.
     
  8. Re: possibly worst car ever

    Not to mention that this automobile has 4 fully independent electric modulators powered by a single-centrally balanced fuel cell unit.
    It also will be the first automobile with all-wheel-steer at more than 12 degrees. (un-like the new Quadrasteer trucks, respectively)

    Anyone wanna' drive sideways?

  10. Re: possibly worst car ever

    all of you who say this car sucks have no idea what this design means. You are all ignorant.
     
  11. Re: possibly worst car ever

    Design sux ass but good tech.
     
  12. Re: possibly worst car ever

    fuel cells arent meant to be fast? well the first combustion cars werent for speed, if u wanted speed, get on a horse and ride hard, but this thing will eventually become fast, we need cars like this to be made, its only a further step in evolution, if car manufacturers, especially ones as large as gm see that there is a profit in this (why else would they do it) they would continue making more advanced cars because of the market for it

    yep its rubbish
     
  15. Re: possibly worst car ever

    this aint a forum to talk about ferraris and your bent bentleys!
     
  16. Re: possibly worst car ever

    I would buy this car for the efficiency of not using gasoline. But I wouldn't buy it until later for the simple fact that it doesn't have a whole lot of power and that I will never be able to hear the cylinders pounding.
